With money, we can buy:
A bed, but no dreams:
Books but not intelligence:
Food, but not appetite:
Adornments, but not beauty:
A house, but not a home:
Medicines, but not health:
Entertainment, but not joy:
A crucifix, but not a Saviour.

Our sincere thanks to all involved in the organisation and participation in Fómhar na Farraige – in particular our fish suppliers here in Dingle who provided a variety of fish for the occasion, na h-iascairí agus a muintir and all who helped with preparing the church.
Wisdom is the most precious gift a person can have. It is a real treasure. Without it all other things are useless because we don’t know how to use them. On being told that he could have anything he wanted from God, Solomon asked for the gift of wisdom. God was pleased with his request and granted it to him. However this doesn’t mean wisdom was handed to him on a plate, so to speak. That does not and cannot happen. Wisdom is not acquired overnight. If acquired at all, it is acquired gradually and often painfully. It is the task of a lifetime.
Pray for:1. Seamus Kennedy, Ballygaw, Ballydavid, Wilma Keyzer, Knocknahow and The Netherlands, Dingle. Suaimhneas síoraí dá n-anamacha.
